“Why have you deployed such policemen who do not recognize the minister. Suspend him,” says Mangal Pandey according to the video
Siwan: Health minister of Bihar Mangal Pandey on Friday was left visibly angry and baffled after a police official deployed at an event in Siwan could not recognize him and stopped him at the security check outside the venue.
In the video, Pandey can be seen as getting angry and the official stops him. He then questions Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Jitendra Pandey the official. The official embroiled in controversy has been identified as Assistant Sub-Inspector of police (ASI) Ganesh Chauhan.
“Why have you deployed such policemen who do not recognize the minister. Suspend him,” says Mangal Pandey according to the video.
RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav shared the video from his Twitter account and condemned Mangal Pandey’s behavior. “I am shocked to see how Bihar’s health minister is bragging about his entitlement. Assuming the police on duty couldn’t recognize the minister and urge for identification, is this behavior of a minister to publicly threaten & humiliate him? Power drunk minister should be suspended instead,”.
